1. For the safari
First and foremost, Botswana is the ultimate wildlife destination, especially since it has the largest concentration of elephants on the African continent. There is a plethora of unique habitats and opportunities to see even the rarest of wildlife. With Botswana Holidays, there are several ways to enjoy a safari depending on what you are looking for. If you want a more adventurous safari, a 4×4 self-drive safari through Namibia and Botswana is the ideal option. If comfort is your main concern, opt for air travel by light aircraft between lodges. If you are passionate about direct contact with nature then a mobile safari is perfect for you.

Many Botswana lodges are on or near water, and offer cruises on mokoro rides – a classic experience in this diverse country. There are bush walks and game drives too, or you can take to the skies by helicopter or plane to discover the landscapes from a birds eye view.
The good thing about a company like Botswana Holidays is that you can spend your days with local guides who truly know everything there is to offer, with an extraordinary local knowledge of the natural surroundings.
4. For the landscapes
Diverse landscapes such as these can be explored on the ground, on the water or by air. There are vast open plains, deserts, salt pans, and the world’s largest inland delta.
Botswana is also a world leader in eco-tourism: over 38% of the land is protected for wildlife and nature conservation. This genuine commitment to the conservation of environment and wildlife means you will have an infinite amount of unspoiled natural landscapes to explore, and all of it is simply breath-taking.
And as a final touch, with Botswana Holidays as your travel agents, you can always add extensions to explore the beautiful landscape around Cape Town, the majestic Victoria Falls and unique Zambezi River or the pristine beaches in the Indian Ocean.
5. For the culture
Having always been a peaceful country, Botswana is the place to experience a wealth of diverse ethnic groups living in harmony with one and other. They are sparse across the country, but if you visit a community they will welcome you with open arms and be happy to share Bushman knowledge with you.
Along with vibrant art, music and dance, gastronomy is another main feature of Botswana’s culture. Local delicacies and dishes are rich in flavour, from meat stew to the popular Seswaa, made with shredded beef.
